The purpose of packaging is to protect goods on their way from the manufacturer to the consumer. Due to its excellent cushioning properties, heat resistance and limitless design possibilities, EPS is used for protective packaging in a variety of industries such as industrial, pharmaceutical, retail etc.
EPS is particularly suitable for fresh food packaging and transportation since it is shock resistant, non-toxic, odourless and does not attract insects or bacteria. ART & DISPLAY
EPS is also used for publicity and sales promotion packaging, as many different decorative effects are easily achieved. EPS is easily painted using acrylic PVA applied by either spray or brush, and is easily cut and worked using conventional hand tools: CONSTRUCTION
In the construction business, EPS sheets and boards are used for thermal and sound insulation in walls, roofs and on floors, while loose beads are used as an aggregate in lightweight concrete, plasters and renderings. Other uses include under floor heating systems, drainage boards, permanent formwork, foundation and prefabricated wall systems. Since EPS remains unaffected by micro-organisms in soil, it is ideal for geothermic insulation beneath roads, around foundations and in embankments where it prevents soil break-up through freezing. RECREATION
Because of its strength, shock-absorbing properties as well as its versatility, EPS is also used for a variety of recreational applications such as bicycle helmets and surf-boards.
